Just when you thought the pussy hat-wearing Women's Marcher's couldn't get any dumber, they go and prove us wrong.
For those lucky few who don't know, these hats are supposed to be "a symbol of support and solidarity for women's rights and political resistance." They came to prominence at the Women's March in January of 2017, and the mission of the Pussyhat Project was to:
1. Provide the people of the Women's March on Washington D.C. a means to make a unique collective visual statement which will help activists be better heard.
2. Provide people who cannot physically be on the National Mall a way to represent themselves and support women's rights.
Sounds perfectly social-justicey, right? Well, it was in 2017, but we're in 2018 now and the bar is just a little bit higher. At the anniversary marches taking place later this month, the hats will not be welcome, lest someone be offended. Not because they make women look like idiots, but because they aren't quite woke enough.
The Detroit Free Press explains:
The reason: The sentiment that the pink pussyhat excludes and is offensive to transgender women and gender nonbinary people who don't have typical female genitalia and to women of color because their genitals are more likely to be brown than pink.
The Pensacola Women's March posted a (very) long message about this "issue" on their Facebook page.
The Pussy Hat Project said that they chose the color"because pink is associated with femininity," butt they encourage women to mix things up depending on what they feel is right.
"We did not choose the color pink as a representation of some people’s anatomy. Anyone who supports women’s rights is welcome to wear a Pussyhat. It does not matter if you have a vulva or what color your vulva may be. If a participant wants to create a Pussyhat that reflects the color of her vulva, we support her choice."
Phoebe Hopps, founder and president of Women's March Michigan and organizer of anniversary marches Jan. 21 in Lansing and Marquette, isn't going to be wearing one anymore. "It doesn’t sit well with a group of people," she said, "that feel that the pink pussyhats are either vulgar or they are upset that they might not include trans women or nonbinary women or maybe women whose (genitals) are not pink."
We're not sure how the left is going to keep getting more ridiculous, but we have absolute certainty that they will.
